So, here we have dark chocolate rolled cake with a cookie dough buttercream. I made the cookie dough with a homemade vanilla ice cream that really kicked up the flavor. I would normally just use milk to give me the perfect consistency, but for Roxana’s Chocolate Party the ingredients were chocolate and ice cream this month. If you don’t want to use ice cream, feel free to replace it with milk.
I normally only make pumpkin roll with my jelly roll pan, but I think I may start making different rolls. This was a rather easy cake to make and absolutely beautiful to present to family and friends. They’ll be amazed, I promise.
After I made this cake, I realized that I didn’t need quite so much cookie dough frosting. I would cut it down, but who doesn’t need an excessive amount of cookie dough buttercream? The correct answer is no one, just so we’re clear.
I found the cake recipe on pinterest. I think that’s where I do most of my recipe finding. I also manage to find tons of wonderful blogs on pinterest. I really love pinterest. It’s one of my absolute favorite websites.
I’m writing this a bit a head of the weekend since we have so much going on this weekend. My father-in-law sponsored a night at the local raceway so we’re going to go down there and introduce Lucian to racing. He loves loud things. It’s weird, but he does. He’s never been scared of the noise. Last year, as we waited forever for the fireworks to begin, he fell asleep on my lap. He was sound asleep as they let off loud blasts relatively close by. Let his father tiptoe by his door in the morning though, BAM, wide eyed and bushy tailed.
We’re also doing some junk hunting at the carnival of sales on Saturday. Carnival of sales is just our town’s fancy way of saying the town is going to be packed with junk on everyone’s front yards. I like to find cheap, but cute props for my blog at yard sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. I’ll definitely be dragging the husband and boy along. I love to watch my husband while I yard sale. He absolutely hates it. It’s the same with thrift stores. I not only get enjoyment out of buying other people’s junk, but from the agonizing look my husband has on his face as I do so. It’s cute.
I put this recipe together for Roxana’s Chocolate Party.
You can join in on the fun too. Head on over to the facebook page and get started on sharing.
I hope you enjoy the Chocolate Rolled Cake with Cookie Dough Buttercream!
